Apart from the primary gloss (for which see n.1 below), this material reappears under kappa 2062, q.v.
[1] The gloss is erroneous, since the headword is a proper name (see n. 3 below). Adler cites Hesychius beta949 for comparison, and his onoma ("name") has apparently become onos here.
[2] Aristophanes, Lysistrata 360-1 (web address 1 below).
[3] Hipponax fr. 120 West. See iota 588 both for him and for his enemy Boupalos.
